9 days.

It super sucked having to wake up so early today, but I just had the most wonderful church service and I love Easter so so so so much. Happy Easter, everyone.

moons and junes and ferris wheels
the dizzy dancing way you feel
as every fairy tale comes real
i’ve looked at love that way
but now it’s just another show
you leave ‘em laughing when you go
and if you care, don’t let them know
don’t give yourself away
i’ve looked at love from both sides now
from give and take, and still somehow
it’s love’s illusions i recall
i really don’t know love at all.

I was commissioned to write one (1) wind ensemble piece, but I just realized I am writing two (2) completely different wind ensemble pieces. Oops.

Please tell me every good wind ensemble piece ever. Extra credit if you have scores or links to them. Also, whatever I need to know about writing for wind ensemble…


I was gonna say Maslanka 4, but you’re already listening to that …

In no particular order, and…

All these. Also Jonathan Newman: Symphony no. 1 “My Hands Are a City”, Steven Bryant: Ecstatic Waters and Concerto for Wind Ensemble, Stravinsky: Symphonies of Wind Instruments and the Concerto for Piano and Winds, and also the Messiaen pieces for wind ensemble/piano and winds.
